I have to draw a diagram of the cardiac cycle for someone with mitral valve prolapse. Can someone please give me a hand with this. I know that in mitral valve prolapse the mitral valve closes properly, but upon contraction of the ventricles it flips open into the atria.
Would this drop the volume and the pressure in the ventricles, while increasing the atrial pressure? How would I show this properly on a cardiac cycle diagram.
Thanks for any help!
